459. Manx, Tuvalu, Singapore And Sri Lanka New Issues.

  Isle Of Man will issue a set of 8 stamps on 1 October 2014 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Manx Radio. The stamps were designed by Mainstream Marketing And Communications and lithographed by Lowe-Martin. The total face value of the set is £5.74p.

  In Blog 454 I mentioned the 3 new stamp issues which Tuvalu is said to have released on 14 August 2014. None of the subjects featured have anything to do with Tuvalu itself - the first of the issues is on Macaws and consists of 2 sheetlets, each of 6 stamps (both sheetlets each have 6 similar designs but all 6 stamps in each sheetlet have slightly different backgrounds hence creating 12 different stamps):-

 "World Famous Paintings" - 2 sheetlets each of 3 different stamps and 2 miniature sheets:-

  Twenty fifth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - 1 sheetlet of 4 different stamps and I miniature sheet:-

  The total face value of all the above items is AU$ 54.40c (£30.59p). For information about other Tuvaluan issues of 2014 see Blogs 381, 383, 385, 387, 401, 450 and 454.
  Sri Lanka issued 6 stamps and 1 miniature sheet which combined all 6 designs on 22 August 2014 which commemorated the Pigeon Island Marine National Park:-

  Singapore Post issued 2 stamps and 1 Collector's Sheet on 28 August 2014 as its third issue to commemorate the holding of the Singapore 2015 International Philatelic Exhibition in 2015:-

  The next issue from Singapore will be a block of 4 stamps on the subject of the Singapore Sports Hub which will be released on 5 September 2014:-
